Reston Community Center (RCC) is a community leader, bringing the community together through enriching leisure time experiences that reach out to all and contribute to Reston’s sense of place. RCC collaborates to improve our and other Reston organizations’ effectiveness, to build community, and to strengthen our identity. RCC outreach and collaboration support our mission, serve Reston, and enhance our value to the community.

RCC provides four lines of programming to the Reston community: Arts and Events, Aquatics, Leisure and Learning, and Facility Rentals. Operations are supported by revenues from a special property tax collected on all residential and commercial properties within Small District 5. RCC also collects internal revenues generated by program registration fees, theatre box office receipts, gate admissions and facility rental fees. These activity fees are set at a level substantially below the actual costs of programming and operations since Small District 5 property owners have already contributed tax revenues to fund RCC. Consequently, Small District 5 residents and employees enjoy RCC programs at reduced rates.
Reston Community Center enriches lives and builds community for all of Reston.
